HPI Updates The RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+

HPI Updates The RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+


The legendary HPI ready-to-run Nitro RS4 3 EVO+ now features several high performance upgrades that make it our highest spec RTR nitro touring car ever. We added a 2.4GHz radio system, waterproof servo, 7.2V battery pack with AC wall charger for the Roto Start system, AA batteries for the transmitter and receiver, an stealth black engine heat sink and orange anodized chassis parts.


Controlling the RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ is easy with the HPI TF-40 2.4GHz radio system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically. The TF-40 pistol grip transmitter features adjustments for steering trim, throttle trim, steering dual rate, end points, servo reversing switches, low battery indicator, and a 3rd channel for optional accessories. The 3 channel receiver is equipped with a failsafe system for maximum safety.


To help get your new RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ running as quickly as possible, a rechargeable 7.2V Plazma 2000mAh battery pack and AC wall charger are now included to power the Roto-Start electronic starting system, along with Plazma AA’s for your transmitter and receiver. We’ve also included a glow igniter, spare glow plug, multi-purpose wrench, and a fuel bottle so all you need to get is fuel from your local hobby shop and you’re ready to start racing. It doesn’t get any easier than that!


The RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ gives you three pre-painted body choices to choose from. For fans of classic American cars, try the Plymouth® AAR ‘Cuda or the 1967 Chevrolet® Camaro®, both with Vintage Series wheels and tires. Or go with the latest BMW M3 GT2 decked out in full race graphics. All of the bodies come pre-painted, trimmed, with decals applied and mounted for the ultimate in ease and concours quality appearance. And you can always customize your car with any of the clear or pre-painted polycarbonate body shells from the huge assortment of HPI bodies and other manufacturers as well!


The RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ chassis is 4WD for consistent traction on a wide variety of surfaces, easy to drive, and has all of the features you need to adjust for a perfect set-up: camber, toe-in, ride height, Ackerman, and a wide variety of available shock oils and shock springs! With a big foam front bumper, stiff 2.5mm gunmetal anodized aluminum chassis, high impact nylon upper deck and shock towers, you’ll see that the RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ can easily take the abuse of parking lot driving. The full ball bearing, 4WD shaft drive system is very efficient and capable of handling high power engines.


The RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ delivers the sound and excitement of nitro power. The T3.0 engine propels the car to speeds over 50mph. An aluminum tube header is included for blistering speed, improved heat dissipation, and extra strength. A black alloy tuned pipe matches the header and engine head perfectly for a stealth look that warns your buddies that the T3.0 is serious about laying down massive power. An adjustable 2 speed transmission is included, compatible with a wide variety of optional gears to help tune the gearing to track conditions. Everything combined gives the RTR Nitro RS4 3 Evo+ a healthy dose of bottom end punch and screaming top end performance, and the durability to handle parking lot conditions with ease.


As with all HPI cars and trucks, you get a full, in-depth instruction manual with step-by-step instructions that allow you to easily disassemble and reassemble your car for maintenance and easy servicing. The manual also includes a handy parts list and full-scale drawings of the parts and hardware. And the included HPI RC Car DVD is your personal RC car expert in a box!
